receive funds from your client (e.g. money order, check, etc.) I’m glad to

You have my assurance that we’re constantly working towards expanding our
service to include this feature since it would be beneficial for both of us to

first to know. If you have additional questions or need further assistance, please
don’t hesitate to contact us at
8:00AM to 4:30PM

I’m glad you got in touched with us and I get this clarified for you. Your
patience is greatly appreciated. We are pleased to have you as a member of the
